Characters on the Red Carpet Literacy Event held on October 24th

IMG_4146Our Characters on the Red Carpet Literacy Event was held on October 24th from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. During the evening event we provided activities for parents and their children to assist with reading and writing. There was a special Make and Take session for our ELL students and their parents. Stories were read by teachers and staff in fullIMG_4102 dress as their favorite book characters. Our Principal Dianne Young and Assistant Principal Tammy Smith had Bingo for books where students could choose a grade appropriate book for the taking as a winner. The Media Center had a Scholastic Book Fair for students to purchase their favorite books for reading. PTO sold food and other snacks to students and parents.

IMG_4132It was an educational, fun filled night that students and parents enjoyed very much. We would like to thank the parents and students, who came dressed as their favorite book character, school staff and teachers for coming and making the night a successful one. We appreciate all that you do to assist the students to a better education. A special thanks to Mattie Deubel for spear heading the event. Go Falcons!

Reading with your child

Mount Rushmore

If you travel, have your child research where you are going, list places of interest and facts about it, and map out the route.

  • Try using a camera to record what you are doing and create your own personal video journal using Movie Maker!  It comes free with Service Pack 2 on all PCs or iMovie for Macs.
  • Want to create something interesting?  Check out Google’s Sketchup!  You can create your own house or city.
  • Wanting to travel the world but can’t get away?  Why not see where Google Earth can take you!  The National Geographic photographs and articles will keep you busy for weeks, not to mention looking at your own house from a satellite’s viewpoint!

Cooking with your child

Taking the time to cook with your kids can incorporate all elements of the curriculum.  Reading the recipes build reading skills and comprehension, measuring out the ingredients is math, the blending and creating of the ingredients is science, the origin of the ingredients is social studies and the nutrients of the final items are health.  Not to mention just having fun spending time creating something with your child.  LWPE would like to share some of their favorite recipes (or some that we thought you might like) with you.  Try a few, share some, and enjoy creating some with your kids.  If you have a recipe you would like to share please send it to me at Smith1S@stlucie.k12.fl.us.
